Romantic Getaway -Rosemary Beach Area - Village of South Walton

Bedrooms Studio
Space 550 sq. ft.
Property type condo


About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Explore Rosemary Beach, the Village, and Alys Beach - all at a price better than a beach hotel. Only steps away from world famous Rosemary Beach, at a fraction of the cost! Enjoy our white sandy beaches, new pool area, restaurants, and shopping.

The Village of South Walton is adjacent to the Northwest corner of Rosemary Beach with boutique shopping and five-star dining. Flip Flops by the Fountain is a 549-square foot studio apartment in the Village with upscale accommodations for 2 to 4 people. Flip Flops is located in building G of the Villages of South Walton, directly behind La Cocina Mexican restaurant and by the Village pool (heated in the winter)

Flip Flops is an Oversized Junior Suite studio with a king size bed, a queen size sofa sleeper and dinette table. There is a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave, sink and coffee maker. The bath has a full tub with a grab bar. This is the largest, most desirable floor plan in the building.

Start your morning with breakfast at the Donut Shop kiosk or Seacrest Sundries in the Village or walk to Amavida coffee shop, Wild Olives or Summer Kitchen in Rosemary Beach. Enjoy the day at the beach or pool, rent a bicycle, go for a walk, play a round of golf or enjoy shopping at the renowned Silver Sands Shopping Outlet near Sandestin (about 30 minutes away) or Pier Park in Panama City Beach (about 15 minutes away). Stroll through the communities of Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach. Or, do nothing at all.

The beach is within a 5 minute walk or if you prefer, there is complimentary tram transportation to and from the beach. The beautiful new Village pool area is near our building entrance. It has a larger pool deck for sunning, a zero entry pool with fountains, a refurbished original pool, a hot tub and freshly landscaped sign announcing the pool area.

For dinner there are great restaurants to compliment your stay of relaxation and pleasure. The exceptional restaurants in the Village, Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach are just around the corner. A quiet walk will take you to George’s, Edward’s, Wild Olives, Summer's Kitchen and more. Right in the Village is La Cocina and Acme Ice House plus fun and good kiosks including Joe Loves Lobster Rolls on 30A (very fresh) and Sea Crust Pizza. The Peddler's Pub kiosk has wine, beer and soft drinks. Many days you can relax listening to live music.

We would be happy to have you enjoy our "home away from home". Please email if you have any questions or if you are ready for me to make your reservation. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Why Pat chose Santa Rosa Beach

We love the Beaches of South Walton and explored just about every area along 30A over the 15 years before buying our “home away from home”. The summer of 2007 we finally found the place we want to call home. The Villages of South Walton felt perfect to us and we hope you will feel the same.

The Shuttle is really convenient going to the gulf. You can also take it to the 12000 square foot pool at Seacrest Beach North or walk to the smaller pool at the Village.

What makes this condo unique

The atmosphere is perfect for us and of course the gulf is amazing ! . We also love having so many places within a short walk for shopping, eating or just enjoying the area. Cooling down at the fountain feels wonderful – for children of all ages ? Just kick off your flip-flops and enjoy !

We’ve gathered some restaurant information (along with editorial comments) in the blue binder in our unit. We ask guests to pick up other menus to add along with comments. We love to eat and explore new places !

In the orange binder we’ve gathered some general information about the area.

We hope you can come and have a wonderful time.

Excellent Trip. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to this area and it could not have been better! Very charming and relaxed community. The condo was exactly as advertised and as shown in the photos. It was beautifully decorated, clean and centrally located. We stayed 5 nights and had plenty of room for a family of 3. Lots of fun shopping and great restaurants right on the property. We rented bikes to explore the area and had as much fun cruising around as we did at the beach! We made trips to Destin and Panama City Beach, which were both reasonable drives. All in all it was a great trip and we would recommend this condo and the area!

Great location, quiet and conevnient

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for a short trip over spring break. Not being students we wanted something quiet, comfortable and convenient.

Nice decoration, easy to find and check in.

The tram takes you to the beach or you can walk to it (it's not that far, really!). The basics to get yourself set for a quick snack or a big salad.

I arrived at this rental at the check in time of 4, expecting to be able to rinse off and relax after a hot day spent outside. I walk in to an absolutely filthy unit. Hair and toothpaste all over the bathroom sink, a pile of wet dirty towels on the bathroom floor, fingerprints all over the mirror and glass table, and worst of all, an unmade bed with sheets that had makeup and hair all over them. When I called the rental office, they casually said "oh, I'm not sure what to do", then called back and said the cleaning people didn't have these dates down, they'll be there soon and it'll take them an hour to clean! Also, be aware that they are redoing something to the pool concrete right across the street and it is non-stop construction noise. Would definitely NOT recommend you stay here at all!!!

Owner's Response: The guest was right: I was very disappointed when I learned of a schedule mix-up with the cleaning people. We expect our guests to walk into a clean welcoming vacation spot. The delay in cleaning meant the start of this guest’s stay was delayed almost 2 hours and we understood her frustration. We apologized and did not charge her. The pool construction is temporary and will result in a substantially enhanced pool area. We are used to guests being happy. The next guest sent a message during her stay:” Pat, it is just wonderful!!! We love your condo so much! My husband and I want to come again sometime, just the 2 of us :-) ”.

Map needed

  • 3 of 5

Very nice place...long way from beach (IMHO).

Long way from shared pool but only because condo pool was not totally repaired/finished.

Rental was actually on sea crest beach and not rosemary needed of the area/subdivision

Loved the atmosphere

As for the beach...chair rental company essentially took up all of the available private beach so you either rented a chair for an unreasonable amount per day or you walked approx 1/4 mile to "trespass" on another private beach that the chair rentals had not taken over yet.

Other than these few items it was a vacation to remember. (15 yr anniversary) :-)

Oh yea...king bed was AWESOME !!!!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a vacation to remember. I hope you will come back and enjoy the new Village pool very close to our building. The walk to the beach entrance is less than a quarter mile which I mention in the email I send guests. Instead of walking some guests like to take advantage of the complimentary tram between the Village and beach. Please come back . Maybe for your next anniversary celebration?
